Imminent Attack by Iraqi & US forces to enter Najaf. Fighting continued fearfully and Sadr militia may ask for truce to buy time and then to decide to attack at another time.
Sadr thugs seem to be cornered in the narrow populated residential areas taking shields of whatever available. Inexperienced in fighting, Iran and Sadr pushed them into a death corner. Soon they will curse Sadr, Iran and its juggler leaders!
Mass exodus of civilians fled Najaf between the bombardment of US forces and intimidations of Sadr thugs. The longer the situation continued the more serious impacts on the innocent civilians!
Bin Laden gave the go a head for a close attacks in the US, UK, Italy, Pakistan and Middle East country which may be UAE or Qatar!
